Mornin '11
You know, sometimes, I really miss games like Caesar 3 and SimCity 4: Rush Hour - games I could quite literally play for days and not get bored. The more you play, the more challenging it gets. Not to mention the fact that the player is required to think his every move and to plan ahead. That's right you have to use the huge thing inside your head (i.e. the brain) and I find that gratifying, as I'm sure a lot of you do. I'm not saying we should chuck all the shooters and casual games in the river.

I'm just annoyed because I really loved SimCity 4 and then somebody at EA decided it would be a marvelous idea to take an epic dump on the franchise by releasing something immature and downright moronic like SimCity: Societies.

I have a cd copy of Caesar 3 if you want it. I miss the city building games from impressions game studio. Damn you sierra and interplay.

You know what, maybe it's just the notion of the challenge and thrill that comes when trying to maintain a city. Something will always pop up, traffic problems, economic problems, etc. Also, no matter how hard you try, you can't always influence the growth of the city's population (or indeed its decline).

I dunno. I miss those days, I really do.

heroes of might and magic is still installed here, for a classic 3-4 friends night every now and again
caesar 3 was great.
and so was populus 3: the beginning, wich i plan to install again over the weekend.
the only 'new' game i got is dragon age 1, and it kinda sucks. i miss being 16, when i could play mediocre games and enjoy them.

Sim City 4 was too complicated for most gamers. It's hard to remain a gamer with all the bullshit that comes out, but we still get a few good games every year.

The forums need attention.

1) Update to 4.1PL2. The version currently in place is well over a year old.

2) Implement a question and answer section of the registration. reCAPTCHA is unreliable and has recently become more susceptible to exploitation. New user registration has leapt dramatically in the last few days, and I've gone from banning a handful of users over a week to literally more than a hundred every day. A simple "What is the fourth word of this sentence?" or "What color do you get when you mix blue and yellow?" would suffice.

3) If you're not going to actively maintain the forums, put someone in place who will.


These are the user registration numbers over the last few weeks:
